With a reputation of mayhem, partying and humor, metalcore/deathcore band Attila is ready to please the crowds. Attila’s flame is kept burning higher and higher thanks to the explosive energy of the band’s live concert performances as they bring in the new year with their New Kings Tour launching in January 2014. Fronzak opened up their Warped Tour 2013 performance by rallying up the audience, pumping up the energy before exploding into their set. June of 2013 saw the release of Attila’s fifth album About That Life, which stormed onto the Billboard 200 charts at No. 22, confirming that awesome — and often humorous — Attila are here to stay.
Hailing from Atlanta, Georgia, Attila has seen a slow windup to their fifth and most successful album About That Life. Attila formed in 2005 as a result of Chris Fronzak, Sean Heenan, Sam Halcomb, Matt Booth and Kris Wilson’s mutual love of music — and partying. Named for Attila the Hun, the band released two albums before signing with Artery Recordings and introduced their third, debut album Rage, which charted at No. 15 on the Billboard 200 Heatseekers chart. About That Life also peaked at No. 5 on Independent and Top Rock charts while hitting No. 4 on the Hard Rock chart. Preceding their debut album, Attila released Fallacy in 2007 and Soundtrack to a Party in 2008. Following Rage was Outlawed in 2011 and About That Life in 2013. Attila playfulness always challenges the status quo and never disappoints. Attila has just announced a headlining tour beginning in January 2014. It’s in their native U.S., but with such a strong live following, tickets to the UK is surely just around the corner.
